For many years now I have been feeding and watching wildlife, There's still many animals on my want to see list though.

See my Flickr link below for a taste of the wonders I've met both in the garden and the world around it.

At Home I feed the birds and have like many found that what food given can really effect who turns up.
So I have a couple of little recipes you you to try for fat blocks which i find go down a treat.(see wildlife notes page)

When out on the nature reserves I keep safety in mind and have important numbers on my phone for anything eg, RSPCA/Local wildlife rescue people, police and emergency services.  I always think its better to be safe than sorry. I also recommend a safety whistle.



What I use to Watch Wildlife

I managed to get some scrimp nets on offer. These are great for hiding my little tent I use in wet weather.
I mostly use The throw over hide  I have with works well as I'm short (4F 10inches) so I have plenty of room. I have one in Hardswood green.
I also treated myself to a lens cover in advantage timber. I use this with the throw over hide to  welll...... hide!
